We've all been feeling it: the intensity in the spirit. The pressure. The pushback. The resistance. The attacks. The buffeting. It seems like one thing after another. Some days, it feels like every breath, step and word requires an increase of focus and effort. Everything feels like a push – even prayer, devotional times and worship.
The enemy wants us to think it is because he is winning. He wants us to choose to believe that the intensity means that his agenda of wickedness, unrighteousness and evil are rising to an unstoppable high tide of darkness. And sure, many of the things we are dealing with in our lives –¬†as well as most of the headlines and stories coming across our news apps – can make it easy to agree with that. But remember this: the enemy is a liar; he is not winning; he is defeated... (more)
Disappointment is the enemy's number one tool to destroy and discourage God's people. When we are disappointed, we quit pursuing our God-given dreams and allow sadness and depression to creep in.
Recently, as my husband Mina and I were in God's presence, the Holy Spirit began to reveal this truth: many of God's people are disappointed, and many have given up on believing God for their promises. At that time, we heard the Holy Spirit point to Romans 5. As we started reading this chapter, we came across verse 5:
"And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love... (more)
I have had quite a number of recent encounters and dreams with the Lord where He has highlighted the month of December to me. As I sat with the Lord seeking His heart, I heard Him say, "DIG DEEP IN DECEMBER." When the Lord spoke these words, it was not a light encouragement – there was an urgency upon what He spoke.
Don't Doze in December
I then heard the Lord say, "DON'T DOZE IN DECEMBER."
We are entering a period of time where it is imperative, more than ever before, that we are deeply positioned in the Word of God and at the feet of Jesus, listening to what He is saying... (more)
Be a Torch Carrier
Recently the Lord spoke to my spirit while I was resting and said, "Torchwood Court, 1321 Torchwood Court, Torch Carriers." He repeated it again, and the Holy Spirit told me to look up 1321 (or 13:21) in Scripture (which I will share about below). Torchwood Court is the street I grew up on, and 1321 was part of the house numbers. I hadn't thought about it in a very long time, until the Lord spoke this to me.
When He said "Torch Carriers," I believe He was saying this to us: It is the time for the fire of God, in this generation, NOW! Now He is revealing Himself as the pillar of fire. He is depositing His strength, guidance and love in us. He will not leave us, but He will protect us, go before us and light up the path... (more)

The word "coronavirus" is now synonymous with the COVID-19 pandemic, but largely harmless coronaviruses capable of infecting humans have been around for decades.
(Switzerland) — [Studyfinds.org] The word "coronavirus" is now synonymous with the COVID-19 pandemic, but largely harmless coronaviruses capable of infecting humans have been around for decades. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich report prior exposure to mild coronaviruses actually provides a certain degree of immunity against SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19...(more)
